Is this a good idea, or should I do some other flying V project?
Do it! Great idea!

You should find the small jars of acrylic enamel in most decent diy stores. I did a sign with some a while back. I'm sure it was plasti-kote a us brand. failing that you would find something in art shops, but I would think it would be more expensive. I'm sure the plasti-kote I used was only about 3 or 4 a jar, about 50 or 75 ml

Michael's should have everything you need.

also i was going to recommend the Folk Art paint that enforcer used on his monterey recently. and like everybody has said, check out Michael's if you can. or whatever craft store you have locally.
